Crawley, UK - July 29, 2003: Scientific Computers Ltd (SCL) announced today that it had signed a new Distribution Agreement with MKS to serve UK Channel Partners. Building on their significant success with the MKS UNIX to Windows porting tools SCL is working with MKS to increase channel sales and to increase the flexibility of the MKS Toolkit product offering.

Dr. Alan Hall, Director of Scientific Computers said, "We have found that a large number of our direct customers for the UNIX to Windows porting tools are using the MKS Toolkit to deliver a rich scripting environment for Windows. In particular, customers are using MKS Toolkit to write scripts to automate the installation and configuration of software applications, manage backups and build common development and deployment environments across Windows, Linux and UNIX."

The award-winning MKS Toolkit product family includes several related products for UNIX-Windows interoperability, UNIX-Windows application migration and cross platform development. MKS Toolkit provides a comprehensive suite of UNIX utilities for windows and additional native window utilities, enabling developers and system managers to customize, control and automate software development and administration processes.

Mark Funt, MKS Vice President International & North American Sales, says "MKS tools dramatically reduce development time and cost for porting applications from UNIX to windows. A strong distribution channel is absolutely critical for MKS as we deliver our solution to the global marketplace. Additionally, the wide scope of tools available in the MKS Toolkit product line has long contributed to productivity gains in the Windows Environment." "Our alliance with SCL", he continued, "provides us with additional marketplace penetration, wider coverage and increased flexibility to offer our customers the most targeted solution at the best price."

SCL has begun working with a number of ISV's who bundle the MKS Toolkit with their software and hardware solutions, to provide their customers with powerful scripting capability to manage and configure the systems. In addition to MKS Toolkit, SCL will be offering its channel partners the new MKS AlertCentre product, which allows customers to build a highly flexible monitoring solution, embedded in their applications and solutions.

Pricing and Availability
Pricing for MKS Toolkit for System Administrators starts at £240 for a single user and is available immediately. Quantity discounts are available for authorized channel partners. For information contact SCL.
